Michael Nehs Answers Five Questions

Michael Nehs Answers Five Questions

In the latest installment of our regular running feature, Michael Nehs, owner of Periscope Post, answers Five Questions with SCREEN.

SCREEN: What's your favorite day of the week?

NEHS: Thursday. Why? Thursday is normally the night I can sit back and relax a bit. By that time, the week has already been very long and Fridays seem to be less stressful then the rest of the week. It also helps that my wife works from home on Fridays so Thursday becomes the start of our weekend together.

SCREEN: Can you cook? If so, what's your go-to dish?

NEHS: My famous Wild Game Chili. I have a lot of friends who hunt and give me wild game throughout the year. So the chili is never the same but based off of what I have in the freezer at the time. If it is a night with me and my wife Dana and there is no wild game in the freezer, there is nothing better than steak and lobster as a solid back up.

SCREEN: What's your most-played iPod track?

NEHS: Can't Truss 'Em - Produced by Knitwit, Performed by Yazz. It's from the first season of EMPIRE. Knitwit, who is a San Diego based producer, just really knows how pull the best out of his performers and Yazz has so much natural talent that the song is filled with emotion and really pulls you in.

SCREEN: What's your guilty pleasure TV?

NEHS: SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE. I started watching it ten years ago with my wife, who is an amazing swing dancer. I got pulled into it and now I can't wait for the new season to start every year... but don't tell anyone.

SCREEN: Describe your perfect Sunday?

NEHS: Any Sunday where my phone doesn't ring regarding work. It's nice to have some downtime and I don't get a lot of that with everything going on at the studio so if I make it through a Sunday without my phone ringing about this project or that one and can just lay back then that's a truly perfect Sunday.


SCREEN: What's your favorite American city? Foreign city?

NEHS: Chicago. Nothing like my adopted home town. Chicago holds everything I could ask for: culture, great food, amazing people and the best skyline in the country. Foreign city? Valletta, Malta. Like I said, I have a thing for Malta, Valletta is a stunning sea side town that was the site of the last battle of the great crusades. The history is overwhelming and it is just a wonderful place to relax and enjoy fresh air.
